Midsummer Pole Cake Topper

Midsummer Pole cake TopperDid you know yesterday was Summer Solstice? Also commonly referred to as Midsummer, this day marks the longest day of the year. Every day from now on out becomes shorter until winter solstice in December. For those of us in the United States, this doesn’t seem that big of a deal. However, in Scandinavia, Midsummer celebrations rival Christmas in their magnitude! Given Scandinavia’s long, dark winters, it’s no wonder they want to celebrate a day commemorating endless light, sunshine, flowers, and warm weather. In Sweden, the celebration is centered on a large maypole, or midsummer pole, made of greenery and flowers. People sing and dance around the maypole, make flower crowns, grill and party all day and night long. It is a holiday to glorify all the best parts of summer!

In the past, we’ve thrown our own midsummer parties and they are pure magic! This weekend is Midsummer, so to celebrate on a much smaller scale, we’ve created a midsummer pole cake topper! It may not be as grand as the celebrations in Sweden, but we’d encourage you to make it as a reminder to enjoy every ounce of summer this weekend! Glad Midsommar!

See how to make your own midsummer pole cake topper!

DIY Giant Candygram

DIY Giant Candygram

Remember candygrams? You’d buy a big piece of foam core and write a cute message in Sharpie using candy to replace some of the words? They’re never the most eloquent of messages and can look a bit tacky with all the mismatched candy packages, but it’s the thought that counts, right? And the candy, of course! That being said, we couldn’t help but want to dress it up in a pretty palette with this DIY Giant Candygram! To be honest, we’re pretty in love with it! It’s almost too cute to eat the candy, but we’ll make an exception 😉 With downloadable files, all you need to do is print off the materials and but the candy! Use it for a friend’s birthday, a thank you, or just a way to show a little love! Everyone deserves a little something sweet now and again…cough…*always*…DIY Giant Candygram

Printable Hot Dog Trays

Printable food Trays

Picnic season has officially arrived and with 4th of July festivities right around the corner, we want to make sure you’re prepared! Outdoor eating means ditching the dishes in replace of paper goods. Maybe it’s just me, but I have a hard time finding holiday appropriate paper goods that aren’t tacky. This is a problem especially when I don’t plan ahead and buy some online. Summer is all about the last minute get together! We want to ensure that you have some festive paper goods to use at your next event that aren’t the least bit cheesy! Details matter, remember? These printable hot dog trays don a freshened up color palette perfect for the 4th of July. Load them up with hot dogs and burgers, s’mores supplies, popcorn, and whatever other goodies you want! Potato chips and hot dogs have never looked so good! And neither have balloon hot dogs 😉

DIY Balloon Garden

Spring blossoms are a huge source of inspiration here at Lars, especially when my garden is overflowing with blooms! Is there anything better than a space filled with fresh blossoms? No sir, there’s not. Unfortunately, that can cost a pretty peony… I mean penny. But, that wasn’t going to stop us from creating a magical garden indoors. Consequently, we turned to one of our favorite mediums: Balloons! As a result, we created a DIY Balloon Garden! (and pssst: The Wall Street Journal just caught onto the balloon moment!)

Simple, eye-catching, cheap, and whimsical, it makes the perfect backdrop for a party or shower. It’s easy to create and just as easy to take down. All you need is an assortment of skinny balloons, commonly used to create balloon animals. We were pretty heavy handed when it came to the number of balloon flowers, but go big or go home, right?!  At the end of the gathering, let everyone take one or a bunch home!

Father’s Day Sport Donuts

Father's Day Sports DonutsAm I the only one that struggles with deciding what to get the men in their life for Father’s Day? When you’re young, a nice hand-drawn picture would do the trick, but once you hit your twenties, that’s not really acceptable anymore. So what do you get a guy for Father’s Day? The problem is, I’ll less familiar with the things that most people associate with “manly” things. I do know, however, that almost all men, with very rare if any, exceptions, LOVE food. In particular, donuts. Donuts decorated like sports? You’ve hit the jackpot. So don’t worry about making a trip to the hardware store and educating yourself on the newest power tools. Just buy some donuts and dress them up a bit! Nestled in a faux-grass lined bakery box and topped with printable sports pennants just for dad, these sport donuts will leave everyone swooning, and your dad drooling!
